it was created. the leaders of the new party were frustrated by the democratic party under bill clinton. they believed it was far too pro business, they wanted it to be for leftist. the leaders and founders of the new party called themselves social democrats. they very consciously wanted to model their party and its platform on the leftist parties of europe. their goal was to create in the united states a giant welfare state of the type we see in scandinavia. of course, mitt romney says this is exactly president obama's goal. the fact president obama joined the party that has -- had as its open goal, imitating the social democratic welfare states of europe certainly strengthenaes romney's point? it certainly does explain a lot about why this president couldn't triangulate like bill clinton and adjust to the marketplace and he holds and clings to this rigid ideology of his. now, he -- he downplayed his relationships with the radical friends. he downplayed his relationship with a.c.o.r.n., he denied a relationship with this group. what do you think this means? what does this tell us about
